Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - May 2, 1907, Lethbridge, Alberta HERALD I8THBRID6E a �. AUSTIN, Uitm �a4 MMiftr. saBSORlPTION: In Advane* 1.80,  year ^OthfrwtM a.OO a year ADVERTISINO: Par Month - tlOO Pw Inch A dooa uw. given an educntipn at the cxpcnso of the people ot Toronto. It ho were to win * Rhodes scholarship oir some other educational distinction ia the future be would find that Toronto would not go into; half the ecataciea it did when he von the foot race. Why shouldn't success along intellectual lines be honored as much as success in athletics? Surely it is ot more lasting benefit? LongBOAT ought to get' on a race with Chief BigCANOE, of Oeorgina Island, Ont. It is proposed that a collage s^hould be startod at Cardston. We propose at once that David Hearst BIton be made professor of Oratory. Bon. Mr. Cushing's announcement at Fernie. that the Alberta Govern -ment would introduce an eight hour law for miners at the next session Of th� Alberta teg7islature did much to clear the air in the mining camps of the south and proliably yiW be the strongest fuctor in bringing about a .'seltlcun.'ii't of the trouble, which for a tinw iiromdscd to stop the whoelsof transportation and industry and cripple business conditions in the west. The declaration by the government was not a bribe to get the men back to work, for the intention art along has'.been to put such a law in operation and one of the duties of the corn- John Eakin is the .sort of citizen to take trips out of the city. Ho is a booster fronr the drop of the hat and that interview ho gave a Toronto paper is worth a good deal of money that might have been spent on publicity. All our citizens should make it a point to talk up his city to the outsiders. a can mission, which the legislature at its last session gave authority to be organized, was to investigate the working cionditions jn the mines, especially in regard to this very question of hours. Mr. Cushing's timely visit to Fernie'however brought about an earlier announcement of the govern -mont's policy. One of the matters that has t>ecn worrying the Alt)crta miners has fjccn the eight hour day question. Across the western boundary of the proyinco in the mines of British Columbia an eight hour law exists and naturally the miners on this side have been discontented over the absence of similar conditions In Al-bert�i. The strike fevcr has Ijccn formentcd by ikis longing for shorter hours. The Afberta government had prac -tically decided on an eight hour law and. when Mr. Cushing saw that the . miners were anxious to know his mind on the matter, he with the consent of the Pren^er told them the course the government was going to pursue and naturally the men were delighted and a good deal of the animosity existing towards governments-and corporations was removed witli the result, we are confident, that the men v^ill ,be more willing to come .to terms with the operators. An eight.hour day is not popular, amongst the operators but Icgislat-ion affecting the industrial world is always sure to displease one side or the other, and the great maaa of the people are left to decide for themselves whether the' legislation is in the public interest or not. From our standpoint an eight hour day for the mriners is in the public interest as well as a great benefit to the men. In the public interest because it will, or should settle one of the knottiest points of conftiot between the operators and their em -ployces and thus assist very greatly to prevent strikes. That one result would satisfy the mass of the people and'tnake- business conditions in coal miniiig centres far more satisfactory andcrutors alike and i.s strong enough to press the investigation to a reasonable and fair conclusion. This riding in automobiles is not all fun. Among the parties that went to Taber on Tuesday wei-e "Shorty" .\dams aiul Harry Driggs. Chaftuer Matthews doubtless thought that nny men who had ridden the Masonic goat a sufficient number of tiine.s to be qualified to go to organization meetings should be able to go some in an auto, and let her out. Only a few of the highest peaks were touched. 'Uioso Vho saw them arrive declare that "Shorty's" hat was holding a precarious positioa on the ends of his hair, while it took three pints of lubricating oil and two crowbars to loosen Driggs from the seat, to which ho was glued.

He is an authority on irrigation and the new Irrigation Co. at Medicine Hat could nOt have engaged a better man to manage its affairs. It is to be hoped wo will soon have Mr. Grace as a citizen of Lethbridge again. He was an enterprising citizen always, and a citycan never have too many of that sort. The School Board must increase the public school staff this mid-sammor without nny doubt. There are now enrolled 440 pupils, 20 of whom are in the high school department requiring two teachers. That loaves 414 pupils for eleven teachers or an average of thirty-eight. This is too large a numlier for any teach er to have and expect to do the best work. The a\'erage enrollment should be kept l)cIow thirty-five if the best results are to be derived. Scientific discovery says ashes are very valuable. But we won't arrest the man who steals our Imck heaps. OIIK POINT IF VIEW H. Biley.
